  • Barrel: Hiss Short Light Barrel
  • Muzzle: L4R Flash Hider
  • Magazine: 32 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Marauder Grip
  • Laser: FJX DIOD-70

One of the key components of short-range combat is maneuverability, and that’s why the Hiss Short Light Barrel, which will offer a recoil boost and movement speed.

The recoil control will be further aided by the L4R Flash Hider, which brings that recoil control for both vertical and horizontal. It also improves ADS speed to help line up a shot.

The 32 Round Mag gives you more bullets to shoot, which can help you take out multiple enemies in short order.

The Marauder Grip is going to give you even more accuracy help by also improving the horizontal and vertical recoil.

Rounding the attachments out is the FJX DIOD-70 to improve your ADS speed, sprint to fire speed, and aiming stability. It all works together to offer the most stable version of the WSP Stinger you can have.
